Funding for KidsCare Needed

Please write your state representatives and senators TODAY and ask them to support removing the freeze on KidsCare in the state budget.
  • KidsCare provides high quality, affordable health care to children from low income working families
  • About 35,000 Arizona children are covered by KidsCare
  • Arizona cannot afford to lose KidsCare again
  • Since 2016, KidsCare has served 114 children with cancer, almost 8,000 children with behavioral health services, over 5,000 children with autism, and almost 3,500 children with asthma
  • The freeze on KidsCare funding must be removed before 10/1/2019 when the federal match for the program drops below 100%
  • Investing in children's health care saves money in the long run by providing preventative healthcare services

Talking Points   

Email your home and work state senators and representatives TODAY. Ask them to support funding for KidsCare and removal of the freeze when they are working on the state budget.
